        BOWLING GREEN — Fans forgot about the sweltering weather Wednesday when country singer Martina McBride stepped out of her tour bus in a slinky orange slip dress.

        “It was fabulous. I was thrilled so many people came,” Ms. McBride said. “People were incredible. It was a great atmosphere.”

        The crowd gathered hours before at Fountain Square Park to get a good spot to watch Ms. McBride film her upcoming video for the song, “When God Fearin' Women Get the Blues.”

        Ms. McBride said the western Kentucky town was chosen because of its picturesque park.

        “(Bowling Green) is nice and close to Nashville,” she said. “It has a great look and is perfect for the video.”

        A few residents from the crowd and the Bowling Green High School cheerleading squad were chosen to be extras in the video.

        “I love it that she came to Bowling Green and asked us because we're national (cheerleading) champions,” said BGHS junior Courtney Daniel. “It's great that the whole town came out to support her and us.”

        Other scenes from the video, which will air June 22 on Country Music Television, were filmed in Nashville, Tenn.
